Xf 16-55 2.8 WR or 12mm F2 Samyang, XF 27 2.8, XF 35 1.4 prime lenses ?

Recommended Posts

Out of the lenses i'm thinking of getting, the only one i want and will  eventually get even if i go for the 16-55, is the 35mm 1.4. 

 

So my options are :

 

1.    16-55 F2.8 WR     

                 or

2. Samyang 12mm F2, XF 35mm F1.4 and XF 27 f2.8

 

The reason of the 27mm is because it comes together with a 35mm in a very good promotion in my country. And i'd still be able to afford the samyang for a wider range shooting. 

 

What i mainly shoot ?! Street Photography, portrait and landscapes. I'll eventually use my lenses a few times for night photography and for a few events a cover (weddings, parties, but i don't do this often). 

 

 

If i go for the 16-55, basically i'll have the workhorse for the few times i get paid for my photography. If i go for the fixed lenses 12,27,35, i feel my street photography will improve and get better results. 

 

I know in the end it's a personal decision, but i'd still like to get some opinions, probably from owners of all these lenses. So...

 

what would your option be ? 

 

 

 

thank you for your time.

Street photography is not depending on lens form factors but rather your body language and behavior. You can act like a reasonable person and shoot with a big lens and get away with it but also act like a creep and shoot with a small lens... and get busted.

 

If you want a workhorse, the 16-55 will not disappoint you. The focal lengths it covers are of high quality. 16-55 and 35 1.4 is a VERY nice combination for people pictures.

 

I'd only go for the 12/27/35 comboi if astro photography is a big interest, as the 12/2 is brilliant for that purpose.

 

I mostly used the 16-55 for weddings but the more I used it, the more I started using it for personal photography. It's simply a brilliant lens. Big and heavy but also optically stellar.

I’ve just bought the 12mm Samyang which has replaced the 10-24mm ( because I used it the most, practically only, on 10mm so I thought that I might as well buy a prime lens rather than a zoom), however I’ve bought a 18-55 to cover the intermediate field.

 

The 12mm is absolutely spectacular for the price. Even slightly longer lenses (14mm) simply don’t cut the mustard for me in the super-wideangle department.

 

I am selling the 35mm because, yes, I used it for many pictures and is a great lens, but I really wan to have a maximum of 5 lenses in my bag. I know that If I had more than that it would only become very confusing for me and I would ebd up not using certain lenses if not very occasionally.

 

If I were to advise you it would be indeed to use the 12/27/35 but only because this is what you gave us to chose from .

 

I have considered the 27mm and to keep the 35mm myself, but again, right or wrong I have decided to replace these two lenses for a general purpose small zoom, cheap but very well made and, within its class, I think, one of the best lenses on the market.

I own the 35 and just purchased the 27. From my perspective of mostly people shots, the 27 is great for just about anything and the 35 is now only going to come out in lower light and when I'm doing professional portrait work. That 27 is way better than I could have imagined. The focal length and small size would seem perfect for street work.

      After moving to Fuji X system I extensively used large number of Trans-X bodies and XF lens. Most of them perform excellent optically and very good mechanically. I think Fuji is doing great job designing and supporting gear.
      The only thing is bothering me all the time - if the electronics is dead lens typically becomes fully unusable. There are numerous third party or adapted fully manual lens that solve that concern. But what if I want to keep using my favorite Fuji optics mechanically? I've performed numerous attempts and discovered potential of converting XF 35mm F1.4 and XF 27mm F2.8, and recently found highly satisfying result of adapting Fujinon XF 27mm F2.8 that requires relatively low effort.
      Here's resulting article explaining what can you do with electronically dead Fujinon XF 27mm F2.8 lens to bring it back to life in much more compact frame of Industar 50-2.
      Alternatively you can also use adapted Fuji XF 27mm F2.8 lens on other APS-C cameras like Sony or Canon.

      Hello Everyone,
       
      My name is Dwain and I'm new to this forum and to Fujifilm cameras but not to their film.  I'm a former Canon shooter (not professional).   I've decided to keep my Canon 6D, the 24-105 F4 and the 100 F2.8 macro lenses just in case.  I delved into large format (Chamonix 4x5) for a short time, shooting primarily Acros developed in Rollo Pyro.  My interests tend to lean towards landscape, architectural, environmental portraiture and night photography but lately, I've been itching to try street and event photography. 
      I recently placed an order for the X-T3 and the Fujinon XF18-55 F2.8-4 lens to get use to the system and a good place to start.  Not sure which other lenses to consider at this early stage.  I did look at the Poll here regarding the most used Fuji lenses and two of the focal lengths I've been considering (23 1.4 and 35 1.4) seem to be the most popular despite these being older designs.  The XF 16 1.4 also looks interesting. 
      Anyway, thought I'd introduce myself. 
      Feedback and suggestions welcome.

      Prime Lenses (15 lenses)
       
      XF 14mm F2.8 R product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,18 m - Magnification: 1:8.33 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 58 mm - Diameter: 65 mm - Length: 58,4 mm - Weight: 235 g - Price (approx.): €880/$700
      Currently the widest prime in the native lens lineup. It’s said to be very sharp, but now that the XF 16mm F1.4 R WR is out, which is not much more expensive, two stops faster and weather resistant, it should be considered if the extra 2mm wide angle are really needed. The manual focus ring can be pulled back to engage manual focus mode, and reveals depth of field and distance scales. (Reviews at Fuji vs. Fuji, Fuji X-Files)
       
      XF 16mm F1.4 R WR product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,15 m - Magnification: 1:4.76 - Aperture Blades: 9 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 67 mm - Diameter: 73,4 mm - Length: 73 mm - Weight: 375 g - Price (approx.): €1000/$850
      Close-to-perfect wide angle lens, relatively high magnification due to short close focus distance, even weather resistant. Has the same manual focus mechanism as the XF 14mm F2.8 R. Only optical downside seems to be coma in the corners when wide open (bad for astrophotography). Quite big and expensive. (Reviews at Fstoppers, the digital trekker, Admiring Light)
       
      XF 18mm F2.0 R product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,18 m - Magnification: 1:7 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 52 mm - Diameter: 64,5 mm - Length: 40,6 mm - Weight: 116 g - Price (approx.): €410/$450
      One of the original three prime lenses from the beginning of the X-System. Very small and light. The varying rating of the optical quality throughout many reviews suggests copy-to-copy variation. The autofocus motor used in this lens is slightly noisy compared to the virtually silent linear motors of most other Fujinon lenses. (Reviews at The Phoblographer, light priority, MacLean Photographic)
       
      XF 23mm F2.0 R WR product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,22 m - Magnification: 1:7.7 - Aperture Blades: 9 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 43 mm - Diameter: 60 mm - Length: 51,9 mm - Weight: 180 g - Price (approx.): €499/$449
      Following the success of the XF 35mm F2.0 R WR, Fujifilm released this weather resistant medium-wide-angle prime lens, designed for rangefinder cameras. (Reviews at Jonas Rask (many images) and The Phoblographer, Comparison with the XF 23mm F1.4 R at IVAN Joshua Loh)
       
      XF 23mm F1.4 R product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,28 m - Magnification: 1:10 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 62 mm - Diameter: 72 mm - Length: 63 mm - Weight: 300 g - Price (approx.): €890/$750
      Excellent fast medium-wide-angle prime. Have not heard anything bad about it. Has the same manual focus mechanism as the XF 14mm F2.8 R. (Reviews at la RO QUE, kwerfeldein (german), Dan Bailey)
       
      XM-FL (24mm F8.0)
      Close Focus Distance: 1 m - Magnification: 1:41 - Aperture Blades: none (fixed) - Filter Thread: none - Diameter: 60 mm - Length: 21 mm - Weight: 32 g - Price (approx.): €/$85
      Fixed aperture, fixed focus body cap filter lens (soft filter & cross filter). Sharp from approximately 1 m to infinity. So far only available in Japan. (Reviews at ReViewed, DSLR Magazine (translation by Google), Infos at PetaPixel, Video from CP+ 2015 at News STC (youtube))
       
      XF 27mm F2.8 product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,34 m - Magnification: 1:10 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 39 mm - Diameter: 61,2 mm - Length: 23 mm - Weight: 78 g - Price (approx.): €350/$250
      The smallest and lightest X-Mount lens, apart from the bodycap filter lens. Optically not perfect, but still quite good when stopped down (most say from f/4 downwards). Has no aperture ring. Has a slightly noisy autofocus motor, in contrast to the virtually silent linear motors used in most other lenses. (Reviews at Tom Grill, Stephen Ip, photozone , LensTip)
       
      XF 35mm F2.0 R WR product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,35 m - Magnification: 1:7.4 - Aperture Blades: 9 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 43 mm - Diameter: 60 mm - Length: 46 mm - Weight: 170 g - Price (approx.): €400/$400
      Weather resistant normal prime lens. Designed for rangefinder cameras. It's short and gets narrower to the front, so it does not stick into the viewfinder frame. (Reviews at IvanJoshuaLoh, lenstip and FujiRumors (by Rico Pfirstinger) )
       
      XF 35mm F1.4 R product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,28 m - Magnification: 1:5.88 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 52 mm - Diameter: 65 mm - Length: 54,9 mm - Weight: 187 g - Price (approx.): €590/$400
      One of the original three prime lenses from the beginning of the X-System. Very sharp in the center, mediocre corner sharpness wide open gets a lot better when stopped down from F/1.4 through F/8. Anyway, a good normal prime lens for the X-System. Only downside seemed to be the slow-ish autofocus, but that was addressed with a firmware upgrade.Has a slightly noisy autofocus motor, in contrast to the virtually silent linear motors used in most other lenses.

      XF 50mm F2.0 R WR product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,39m - Magnification: 1:6.7 - Aperture Blades: 9 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 46 mm - Diameter: 60 mm - Length: 59,4 mm - Weight: 200 g - Price (approx.): €500/$500
      The third lens in Fujifilm's lineup of compact, weather resistant prime lenses. Keeps up with the other two. (Reviews at Johannes Morsbach, fstoppers and caveira photography)
       
      XF 56mm F1.2 R product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,7 m - Magnification: 1:11.11 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 62 mm - Diameter: 73 mm - Length: 70 mm - Weight: 405 g - Price (approx.): €1000/$900
      The 85mm fullframe equivalent portrait prime in the lens lineup. As tested by Admiring Light, quite close to perfect. (Reviews at Admiring Light, Nathan Elson, Olaf Photoblog, Jonas Jacobsson)
       
      XF 56mm F1.2 R APD product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,7 m - Magnification: 1:11.11 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 62 mm - Diameter: 73 mm - Length: 70 mm - Weight: 405 g - Price (approx.): €1300/$1200
      Same as above, but with built in apodization filter (radial, gradual neutral density filter that gets darker towards the corners) to smoothen out the bokeh at the expense of lens brightness. Instead of f/1.2, the maximum light transmissivity is equivalent to t/1.7. This effect is neutralized at f/5.6. A very unique portrait prime, but it does not support phase detection autofocus. (Comparison between APD and non-APD version at Fuji vs. Fuji)
       
      XF 60mm F2.4 R Makro product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,27 m - Magnification: 1:2 - Aperture Blades: 9 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 39 mm - Diameter: 64,1 mm - Length: 70,9 mm - Weight: 215 g - Price (approx.): €600/$450
      One of the original three prime lenses from the beginning of the X-System, and the first macro lens, although the maximum magnification is only 1:2. It is very sharp, but has really slow autofocus. Works well for portraits and stationary subjects like product photography or flowers. When approaching living subjects like bugs, the focal length, and thus the close focus distance, might be too short. Has a slightly noisy autofocus motor, like the XF 27mm F2.8 and the XF 35mm F1.4 R. (Reviews at ishootshows, daisuki photo, The Phoblographer)
       
      XF 80mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR Macro product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,25m - Magnification: 1:1 - Aperture Blades: 9 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 62 mm - Diameter: 80 mm - Length: 130 mm - Weight: 750 g - Price (approx.): €1300/$1200
      The first native 1:1 macro lens for the X-system. This is an impressively sharp lens with a very well working optical stabilizer. The AF is quick, even in the macro range, and does not hunt much.
       
      XF 90mm F2.0 R LM WR product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,6 m - Magnification: 1:5 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 62 mm - Diameter: 75 mm - Length: 105 mm - Weight: 540 g - Price (approx.): €900/$950
      A pretty outstanding short telephoto prime lens, if you like the focal length. (Reviews at Jonas Rask, macfilos; Comparison with the XF 56mm F1.2 R at Tools & Toys)

      First powerzoom lens for Fujifilm X-Mount cameras.
       
      XC 16-50mm F3.5-5.6 OIS product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,3 m - Magnification: 1:6.67 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 58 mm - Diameter: 62,6 mm - Length: 65,2 mm - Weight: 195 g - Price (approx.): €320/$340
      The cheapest zoom lens for the X-Mount, intended as a standard zoom kit lens for the cheaper entry level bodies. No aperture ring, no switch for OIS. Quite small and light. Compared to the XF 18-55mm F/2.8-4.0 R LM OIS, it sacrifices about one stop of light through the whole focal length range, as well as 5mm of focal length at the long end, but gains important 2mm of wide angle. (Reviews at Admiring Light, Imaging Resource)
       
      XC 16-50mm II F3.5-5.6 OIS product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,15 m - Magnification: 1:7 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 58 mm - Diameter: 62,6 mm - Length: 65,2 mm - Weight: 195 g - Price (approx.): €--/$--
      New version, bundled with the new Fujifilm X-A2. Better build quality, closer minimum focus distance.
       
      XC 50-230mm F4.5-6.7 OIS product page
      Close Focus Distance: 1,1 m - Magnification: 1:5 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 58 mm - Diameter: 70 mm - Length: 111 mm - Weight: 375 g - Price (approx.): €250/$400
      This cheap telephoto zoom lens is a bit smaller and quite a bit lighter than the XF 55-200mm F/3.5-4.8 R LM OIS and has no aperture ring. But depending on the intended use, the slower aperture range needs to be taken into consideration. (Reviews at macingosh, riflessifotografici; Comparison with the XF 55-200 F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS at Colin Nicholls)
       
      XC 50-230mm II F4.5-6.7 OIS product page
      Close Focus Distance: 1,1 m - Magnification: 1:5 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 58 mm - Diameter: 69,5 mm - Length: 111 mm - Weight: 375 g - Price (approx.): €--/$--
      New version, bundled with the new Fujifilm X-A2. Better optical stabilization than the predecessor (3.5 stops instead of 3 stops)
       
      XF 18-135mm F3.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,45 m - Magnification: 1:3.7 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 67 mm - Diameter: 75,7 mm - Length: 97,8 mm - Weight: 490 g - Price (approx.): €800/$750
      Fuji's take on a weather resistant always-on travelzoom. Optically, it seems to be good for what it is, but the aperture range does not impress, which is of course a compromise for smaller size and lower weight. (Reviews at Dan Bailey, Admiring Light, The Phoblographer)
       
      XF 18-55mm F2.8-4.0 R LM OIS product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,3 m - Magnification: 1:6.67 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 58 mm - Diameter: 65 mm - Length: 70,4 mm - Weight: 310 g - Price (approx.): €700/$600
      Is said to be the standard zoom "kit" lens for the X-Mount. My experience says, it's much better than the usual APS-C kit lens. Rather comparable to the f/4 L kit lenses canon sells with its full frame cameras. The aperture range is good, the size and weight is perfect, optical image stabilization works very well, and the lens is sharp. Really nothig to complain, especially since it comes at about 350-400€ when bought as a kit. (Reviews at Mark Schueler, photomadd, la RO QUE)
       
      XF 55-200mm F3.5-4.8 R LM OIS product page
      Close Focus Distance: 1,1 m - Magnification: 1:5.56 - Aperture Blades: 7 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 62 mm - Diameter: 75 mm - Length: 118 mm - Weight: 580 g - Price (approx.): €670/$550
      This lens does not have the reach of the cheaper XC 50-230mm F/4.5-6.7 OIS, but with an aperture range from 3.5 to 4.8 it is a lot brighter, and therefore much more usable for the common telephoto applications (a.k.a. wildlife). Very compact when collapsed, and doubles as acceptable macro lens when combined with a +3 diopters achromat. This lens is very sharp wide open, even at the long end. (Reviews at Admiring Light, prophotonut (NSFW), Steeve Marcoux)
       
      XF 100-400mm F4.5-5.6 R LM OIS WR product page

      An outstanding long telephoto zoom lens, offering 5 stops of optical image stabilization. It is sharper when focused close, but the sharpness at infinity focus can be regained when closing the aperture down to f/8. This lens is compatible with the 1.4x and 2x teleconverter. With the 2x teleconverter attached, all current camera models lose phase detection autofocus and have to use contrast detection autofocus.

      The pro-oriented standard zoom lens. Very good build and image quality, but also very big, heavy and expensive compared to the XF 18-55mm F/2.8-4.0 R LM OIS. The 2mm shorter focal length at the wide end, as well as the fixed aperture and the weather sealing might be the decisive factors for buying this lens instead of the XF 18-55mm F/2.8-4.0 R LM OIS, which in turn has optical image stabilization.

      The pro-oriented medium telezoom lens. The image quality of this lens is beyond question, but it's the biggest, heaviest and also most expensive lens apart from the new 100-400. It is compatible with the 1.4x and 2x teleconverters. Cameras retain phase detection autofocus with this lens and the 2x teleconverter attached. (Reviews at Dan Bailey, Jonas Rask)

      A lot more expensive than its direct competitor, the Samyang 12mm 2.0, which is even one full stop faster. The Samyang does not have autofocus, but at those short focal lengths, the depth of field is very large anyway, and Fujifilm cameras have focus peaking to aid manual focussing.

      Some say it's as good as the XF 35mm 1.4, some say it is not. I guess the decision is up to personal preference. (Reviews at Paultography Blog, Admiring Light, Brian Smith (Sony))

      The first macro lens for the X-Mount with a magnification of 1:1. When approaching living subjects like bugs, the focal length, and thus the close focus distance, might be too short. (Reviews at The Phoblographer, Tom Grill, Photo Madd, Passports & Lenses)

      The fastest lens for the Fuji X-Mount, as well as the fastest CSC-Lens overall. Very long close focus distance, big, heavy, extremely expensive.

      Big, heavy full frame DSLR lens that was adapted to the X-Mount, as many other within the Samyang Lineup.

      Close Focus Distance: 0,45 m - Magnification: -- - Aperture Blades: 8 (rounded) - Filter Thread: 77 mm - Diameter: 82 mm - Length: 101 mm - Weight: 640 g - Price (approx.): €520/$--
      Optically very good except for distortion. Big plus is sharpness wide open, but large and heavy because it is an adapted full frame DSLR lens. (Review at cinema5D, SLR Lounge)
       
      85mm F1.4 AS IF UMC & 85mm T1.5 VDSLR AS IF UMC II product page

      Seems to be a cheap, fast medium telephoto lens. Not as sharp as the XF 90mm F2.0 R LM WR wide open. Adapted full frame DSLR lens, but this has less impact in size and weight with longer focal lengths. (Reviews at cameralabs, Bob Atkins, pictures at Donald Falls' flickr photo stream)
       
      100mm F2.8 ED UMC Macro & 100mm T3.1 VDSLR ED UMC Macro product page

      True 1:1 macro lens for the X-Mount. Pictures shown so far look very promising, but with the XF 80mm 2.8 in the pipeline, it should be considered to wait for that one and have a fast telephoto lens with autofocus. Adapted full frame DSLR lens, but this has less impact in size and weight with longer focal lengths. (Review at ephotozine and pictures at Transcontinenta BV's flickr photo stream)
       
      135mm F2.0 ED UMC & 135mm T2.2 VDSLR ED UMC product page

      Huge full frame DSLR lens, adapted to the X-Mount. Excellent image quality. A smaller alternative with autofocus and weather sealing is the XF 90mm F2.0 R LM WR. The XF 50-140mm F2.8 R LM OIS WR, though not smaller or lighter, also adds autofocus, weathersealing, image stabilization and the flexibility of a zoom.

      300mm f/6.3 ED UMC CS Reflex product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,9 m - Magnification: -- - Aperture Blades: none (fixed) - Filter Thread: none - Diameter: 64,5 mm - Length: 74 mm - Weight: 316 g - Price (approx.): €240/$260
      It's a long telephoto, but it's also a reflex design. And the (fixed) aperture is a bit slow. Pictures don't look sharp and show a lot of CA. It has very special ring-shaped out of focus highlights which are inherent to the design of reflex lenses.

      An inverted wide-angle design creates a pure macro lens with magnifications between 4 and 4.5. Can therefore not focus to infinity.
       
      Mitakon Freewalker 24mm f/1.7 product page
      Close Focus Distance: 0,15 m - Magnification: -- - Aperture Blades: 12 - Filter Thread: 49 mm - Diameter: 61,5 mm - Length: 55 mm - Weight: 246 g - Price (approx.): €--/$350
      Shows chromatic aberations and reduced sharpness in the corners, otherwise a good manual focus medium wide angle lens. Aperture ring without clicks.(Review at ephotozine, Simons Photography Blog)
       
      Mitakon Speedmaster 35mm f/0.95 II product page

      The lenses' maximum aperture plottet over their focal length and the resulting diagonal angle of view. The scale is double logarithmic.
      Please note that the denoted angle of view is only valid for rectilinear lenses, fisheye lenses have a wider angle of view at the same focal length, which is inherent to their design.

      How come, no forum members sell & buy, section??   I'm new and need a lens or two.  Other than my 18-50mm...    RJM

      Picked up this lens this afternoon, and took a few snaps. Perhaps not the best compositions, but they give you a good idea of what it's like. So far I'm thrilled with it!
